Postdoctoral Position in Neural Engineering and Implantable Devices 

The Fang Lab at Dartmouth College, Thayer School of Engineering, seeks highly motivated individuals to fill two postdoctoral positions. Our goal is to develop multifunctional, scalable neuroelectronics for understanding the brain and disease treatment. We have NIH-funded BRAIN projects to create, validate and apply large-scale, soft neuroelectronic probes. We are an experimental lab with a team of electrical engineers, materials scientists, and bioengineers.  Positions are available immediately until filled. 

Candidates should have at least one of the following training/expertise: 
(1) Tissue response studies to neural implants. Candidates should have solid experience with investigating tissue response to neural implants, especially over the long term. Having experiences with in vivo neural recordings is an asset. 
(2) Large-scale electrophysiology. Candidates should have expertise in large-scale extracellular spike recordings and corresponding signal processing in the context of understanding animal behavior. 
(3) Neurotransmitter sensing. Candidates should have ample experience working with in vivo or ex vivo electrochemical sensing of neurotransmitters (such as dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, epinephrine) in the context of neurological diseases and pharmacology. 

An earned Ph.D. is required, as are excellent communication skills. 

Qualified candidates are strongly encouraged to send their (a) CV and (b) names and contact info of at least two references to Prof. Hui Fang at hui.fang@dartmouth.edu before formally applying.

The lab closely interacts within the Integrative Neuroscience at Dartmouth program with faculty from the departments of Biology, Biochemistry, Psychological & Brain Sciences, Neurology, Psychiatry, Surgery, Epidemiology, Molecular & Systems Biology. Together with Thayer School of Engineering, this tightly knit group values cross-lab interactions and fosters collaborative publications and mentoring. The relationships one makes in this research environment will nourish and support their scientific aspirations and personal growth.
